Pedophile Priests Release Video/Single ‘Mr Gray’ New Album ‘Cancer’ Out Now

“Mr. Gray” is the third single from the second full-length studio album entitled “Cancer” by Polish Death Metal band PEDOPHILE PRIESTS. The video accompanying the song was directed, shot and edited by Olga Kuzmenko.

Lyrically, Mr.Gray is based on the novel ”The Picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde, a Faustic story about the dream of preserving eternal life in eternal youth. The Gothic and philosophical book received prosecution for violating the laws regarding public morality. Mr. Gray , newly understanding that his beauty will fade, expresses the desire to sell his soul, to ensure that the picture, rather than he, will age and fade. The wish is granted, and Dorian pursues a libertine life of varied amoral experiences while staying young and beautiful; all the while, his portrait ages and records every sin.
In this second album, the Dublin-based Poles bring a melodically progressed hybrid of energy & brutality. Their multi-layered and well-engineered music is a proudly established fusion of all Metal genres. Lyrical reflection on entropy on earth – addictions, longing, politics and society, deviations, conformity and dying… Organic and breathing old school sound. Music from the heart, energy from flesh and bones.

Recommended for fans of: Vader, Behemoth, Hate, Decapitated, Morbid Angel, Kreator, Emperor, Pestilence, Messiah, Sarcofago, and more…

DEATH THE LEVELLER Sign With Cruz Del Sur Music

DEATH THE LEVELLER Sign With Cruz Del Sur Music

Cruz Del Sur Music is proud to announce the signing of Dublin, Ireland doom metallers Death The Leveller.
The label will release the band’s first proper full-length album, “II”, in March 2020.

Originally formed in 2016 out of the ashes of long-running Irish metal ensemble MAEL MÓRDHA, DEATH THE LEVELLER released their debut “I” EP in 2017 to critical acclaim and positive fan reaction. The band’s sound — a melancholic, but strikingly epic take on doom metal — is the result of its four members taking their combined experience and working to create something entirely distinct.

“I think the big takeaway for us was the whole approach to DEATH THE LEVELLER had to be honest, about us, our lives, our losses and our passions,” says drummer Shane Achill. “Sure, we are all influenced by one thing or another, but I can’t say the bands we were in in the past influenced us in any big meaningful way. I know we are certainly influenced by the mistakes we made in the past and how not to recreate those mistakes in DEATH THE LEVELLER.”

DEATH THE LEVELLER (who are rounded out by vocalist Denis Dowling, guitarist Ger Clince and bassist Dave Murphy) fell onto Cruz Del Sur’s radar by way of fellow Irish metallers (and Cruz Del Sur act) Darkest Era. Cruz Del Sur label head Enrico Leccese was instantly a fan of “I” and started up a conversation with the band, with the two parties eventually putting pen to paper in 2019.

“The great thing about Cruz is the quality of bands writing quality music being released by a guy who is a fan of the bands and music he releases,” notes Cahill. “There are not many out there like Enrico at the moment and it was very refreshing for us to find a home for our music that cuts out all the crap that takes away from creating and writing music. Enrico is not looking for the next trend or fashion statement, which is good for us, right? Shortly after that, we demoed three tracks and we finally met at Doom Over Vienna where our relationship was cemented and Enrico got to see us live for the first time. Suddenly it looked like we had a label and that ‘II’ was starting to become a reality.”

The band is currently holed up at Trackmix Recording Studio in Dublin with engineer Michael Richards for the recording of “II”. According to Cahill, the album will comprise of four songs at 42 minutes that are more “introspective” and “reaches more emotional depths than ‘I’.”

“We’re still exploring the human relationship with death and concepts of mortality, but whereas the first release approached the idea of legacy after death, this one goes on a more soul-searching journey to some darker personal places of loss but ultimately also has its uplifting moments,” he says. “Sound-wise, this one has a more laid-back feel in places, giving the general tone of the album more space to breathe and a much more natural sound to come through. On saying that, it also has some of the heaviest sections we’ve done so far. For us, writing each song is a journey, and as we write this, we’re in the studio putting the final pieces of the jigsaw together and the landscape forms in front of us.”

The remainder of 2019 will find DEATH THE LEVELLER putting the finishing touches on “II” while preparing for a run of dates in Europe and Ireland alongside new labelmates, Argus. The band will also be appearing at the bi-annual Redemption Festival in Dublin, as well as Little Devil Doom Days in Holland.

“The main focus for 2020 is to get out there and play to as many people as possible,” wraps Cahill. “These songs mean the world to us. It was a fairly personal and at times, a very emotional journey, but now it’s time to have some fun and bring all of that to the stage and let it rip.”

Peasant To A King Announce Galway Headline Show/New Single ‘Selfish’

Midlands/Galway based Peasant To A King have announced their first Galway headline show on November 22nd and that their new single ‘Selfish’ is set to drop on the same day via Slam Worldwide.

Having heard ‘Selfish’ myself, it’s a big departure in their sound. Gone is the Deathcore of old and now moving towards slamming brutal death metal. Without doubt this is their strongest track to date and they are now finding their own sound/vision for the band.

They released this statement.

“Everyone wants to help, but you can help yourself. Walked this path a thousand times, still you are the same.”

We’re so excited to show you guys this song. So here’s a clip of it, accompanied by some words from Ben about “Selfish”.

“Selfish is an accumulation of self hatred and arrogance. This song is self-criticism. Something we should all be doing is looking at our negative attributes and calling ourselves out. We are all capable of being bad people But we are also all capable being wonderful, healthy individuals. And if we don’t identify and work through our toxic traits then we will never be the best we can be.

This song is a callout. To myself. To you. To your teachers. Your parents. To your dealer. Your friends. Stop being a cunt and just crack on. Remind yourself to be more considerate of others💜”

“Selfish” to be released via SLAM WORLDWIDE on November 22. Available everywhere on the same day.

Watch: GREEN JELLY Track Down Promoter Who Leaves Without Paying And Get Their Money

If you know any bands, you’ve heard this story more times than you would like…
A band arrives to play a show, does a great job, and then when they go to collect their agreed-upon rate, the promoter is nowhere to be found. Some bands go public, some bands take legal action, and some bands suck it up and move onto the next venue.

But, Green Jellÿ is not some bands. They went and tracked down the promoter of the show, and knocked on his door.

“Little pig, little pig, let me in,” shouts Green Jellÿ vocalist Bill Manspeaker can be seen at the top of the video that was posted on Friday, November 8th. The band was stiffed after performing at Old East 765 the night before by a promoter named Marcus.

They eventually find Marcus in the video and won’t leave him until they get paid. They also berate him for what a terrible job he did. According to the video description, “In the end he paid the band less than half and walked away with both his kneecaps.”

The band’s drummer Rob Gabriele told MetalSucks In the end he came up with less than half of what was owed and the band accepted that. We offered him a ride home and shook his hand offering to come back again for a properly-done show at a full advance pay.”

Irish Metal Roundup October 2019

Irish Metal Roundup October 2019

Our monthly round up of the Irish heavy music scene.
Due to my new job banning phones (Thanks to my fellow millennial co workers that can’t live without them stuck to their damned hands…) I have very limited online time each day. I’ve had to create a new Facebook page that has no friends and only follows Irish metal pages to keep up to date now.
I think I’ve got all for the month? If not please let me know I’ll add them. All these will drop again in December… The new page will help me in a big way going forward though!
Seriously. I may be 40 and sound like an angry old man here. But why the fuck are people in their 20’s constantly glued to their damn phone? The screen is too small, typing is shit and it wrecks your neck looking at them…
Took my couple of minutes to do research away every few hours by looking at absolute shite instead of working… Cunts!!!

Anyway, this is October’s round up! Rush job this month as I’m very busy at the moment…
